Pass Version Number to my Class

Postby pricecreations » Thu Aug 02, 2007 2:38 pm

I am trying to pass the version number to my Test_CreationClass so that I can check to see what version of AutoCAD the dxf file was created in to do my own error handling. Does anyone know how I would go about doing this? I am more or less a beginner at all of this. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Some pointers:

Implement the setVariableString(...) method from the DL_CreationInterface (see dl_creationinterface.h)

DXF spec about header variables and their meaning (DXF version is stored as string in field "$ACADVER"):
http://www.autodesk.com/techpubs/autocad/acad2000/dxf/
-> HEADER Section -> HEADER Section Group Codes
